accidental hat revisited...

2009_0314eloisehat0008

pattern used:
hook used:
  • 5.0mm hook
yarn used:
  • this stuff here
  • it seems to be about a 10ply... is hairy, but soft... and oh so snuggly
thoughts:
  • love the idea of working through the back loops only
  • it gives a wonderful stretchy rib texture to the hat
  • will definitely used this method in future
  • this hat was made to fit a three-year-old... but because of the stretch in the stitch pattern... it will comfortably fit an adult, too!
  • flower pattern is taken from the little miss two bag... I worked only round 1, using a 7.0mm hook and 12ply yarn

SORRY- what am I saying?? - it was bought at Lincraft.. I buy so much wool from Spotlight that I automatically wrote that without picturing the shop/ aisles etc.. it was definately a Lincraft yarn..from 2 years ago.
